ProPublica is seeking a developer/journalist to join its award-winning news applications team, covering Illinois and working with and out of our newsroom in Chicago.

As a news applications developer, here’s what you’ll do:

  • Design and develop interactive databases (what we call “news apps”) and interactive graphics to hold the powerful accountable and make a real impact on people’s lives.
  • Work closely with the data and engagement reporters on projects that help Illinoisans understand their world and make good decisions.
  • Do journalism that matters, in collaboration with talented reporters, editors and data journalists, using coding and analysis skills to spotlight wrongdoing.
  • Prove that ProPublica’s success in nationally focused database journalism could do just as much good with local data and for local communities.
